If you are a foreign traveler and this is your first time visiting Jakarta, you should visit this museum. Placed in Kota, where you will experience Jakarta ambiance when it still mentioned as 'Batavia' hundred years ago. The museum will let you understand how was the economy history and trend in Indonesia since the independence day.

Really... actually most museum in Jakarta has great content, but little curation, save this one. This reminds me of the mint museum in Washington DC and perhaps it is because many of the Bank Indonesia directors spent lots of their time shuttling to that museum during their visits to the capitol. Multi media and interactivity is the word and I... More

This museum for me just ok. But, if you want other attraction in jakarta, you should visit here..! Entry price is cheap.. but parking area a little bit difficult. The traffic so bad

The location is very easy to reach by Transjakarta bus or train. We can learn much of Indonesia's bank history. It's free. But you have to report your camera if you want to take any picture in the museum. You can find not only Indonesian money, but also other countries money. It's well managed and complete. The architecture of the... More

Must visit museum in Indonesia. Very well organized, useful information about banking history and system in Indonesia. It's closed to old town area so you can walk to near-by attractions eg Puppet museum, Fine art and ceramic museum, etc

I love this museum even though I don't quite like the theme of this museum. This museum tells us about the history of money. However, I should admit that this museum has arranged a display professionally. It is on a par with overseas museum. Aircons are provided in almost every room. The entrance fee is free. They also provide lockers... More
